First let me say my children are the best thing that has ever happened to me "as any proud parent would say". My husband and I have 4 children and not to brag but 2 boys 2 girls balanced out even, just the way we wanted to be my oldest is a boy my youngest is a girl we are a solid 6, strong and always playing having fun with the boys against the girls when we played games and did thing just for fun we enjoyed each other and we are a proud family that loved hard and played nice. We couldn't ask for anything better then that. It's my kids being raised in a two parent home and in the community we are living in that a hard thing to have going for you is a two parent household my kids went to bed knowing mom and dad kept them safe and away from harm. I got up in the morning on the weekends and cooked breakfast and dad got up on the weekends and planned things to do with the kids to enjoy our time together especially on the days where it was warm and beautiful we are the kind of family that loves to fish take nature walks and love animals we did everything together if you can imagine that we were family and best friends. My daughters we shopped together and cooked the men played the game together and did the yard work. We wasn't story book like you see in the movies but we were a Unit and we stood together for each other thru everything the world was dishing out we knew we could get over it together.
